Summary:
A powerful, environmentally-conscious guide to decluttering, saving money and growing a community inspired by the ancient practice of gift economies where neighbors pooled resources includes seven steps to learning how to buy less and give more.

In 2013, Clark and Rockefeller discovered that the beaches of their community in Puget Sound were spoiled by a daily influx of plastic items and trash washing on shore. They launched the first Buy Nothing Project group, and developed an environmentally conscious program to buy less, give more, and live generously. They share their program to help you declutter your home without filling landfills, shop more thoughtfully and discerningly, and let go of the need to buy new things. -- adapted from jacket
